Modern

Famous quotes containing the word modern:

    All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysands to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defence. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    The public history of modern art is the story of conventional people not knowing what they are dealing with.
    Robert Motherwell (1915–1991)

    Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.
    Ronald Reagan (b. 1911)
